But it does feed fine with standard mags.

    You should read the link that I posted, because the guy that took the infamous "it'll chew up your feed ramps" pics explains they were taken totally out of context and not actual M4 uppers / and M4 cut feed ramps. Another posters ODA has been using USGI mags and M855A1 for thousands upon thousands of rounds with no damage.

    It's kinda hilarious that some dude saw some pics on ARFCOM, over reacted, put out bad info, and it was never corrected. Thanks 82nd Airborne!

    Damn, just got through reading all of that. I need to get on LF more, really good info. Either way though, I still really like the M3 mags and they’re really not any more expensive so I’m still going to encourage units to order them. I think about 1/3 of my BDE is using them now.
